Managing Legal Issues for Translators

This course is all about business issues faced by translator-entrepreneurs.

No one likes to think about compliance with state business regulations, licenses or potential legal problems, but we can help you gain clear understanding of these necessary evils, so you can get back to doing what you love—translation and interpreting!

You will be taught how to recognize and deal with legal and small business issues.

Some of the questions we will discuss and answer are:

👉 Should I incorporate and how is that done?

👉 Do I need to reserve my business name and how do I do it?

👉 Do I really need a separate business bank account?

👉 What about insurance and minimizing the risk of lawsuits?

👉 How do I get a handle on payments and collections?

We will also talk about:

👉 When to seek professional advice,

👉 Minimizing costs and getting FREE business services, and

👉 Planning for the unexpected.
